Lookbook Cookbook. Read 7-15-15, rating 3.75/5, cooking, 192 pages, pub. 2015
Who says fashionistas can’t enjoy delicious food? Jessica Milan, a model-turned-photographer and health-conscious foodie, brings you a lookbook of unique style and a cookbook of tasty vegan and gluten-free meals.
Flip through and you will find super simple recipes for smoothies, apps, snacks, mains and treats paired with photos of real girls indulging in the finished products. You will love looking through the photos as much as you enjoy preparing and eating these amazing recipes, like Tex-Mex Potato Skins, Veggie Pad Thai, Quinoa Yam Patties and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta Pesto. All of the recipes are vegan and completely soy- and gluten-free, using only fresh, all natural, good-for-the-body-and-the-mind ingredients, so you can savor every bite with no guilt.
The heart of Lookbook Cookbook is in the clean, delicious and easy-to-make recipes, but also the soul is in its message: all girls deserve to have their pancakes and eat them too. So, whether you follow a strict vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free diet, or you simply want to incorporate more healthy meals into your week, Lookbook Cookbook is your must-have source of inspiration!
I am always looking for great gluten free-dairy free recipes to try for Gage and I saw this fun book on the shelf at the library so I brought it home. And I totally appreciate that these recipes are also soy free. Soy is bad, people 🙂 Anyway, the girls featured with each recipe are young, attractive and very modern. I love that these girls are showing that healthy recipes are the way of the future.
The recipes themselves were easy to follow, many very basic, and a few that I plan to try in the next few weeks (once I get Gage through this period of acid reflux 😦 ). Here are a few that I’m anxious to try.
Isn’t it an attractive presentation? I really enjoyed this fashionista take on healthy cooking. This book was based on a website by Jessica Milan, Lookbook Cookbook, if you want to take a look there first. It was refreshing to find a book making special diets seem so on trend and hip 🙂
